The Oklahoma City Thunder is a game away from their first appearance in the NBA finals while they seek victory in game 6 against the topseed San Antonio Spurs in the NBA western conference finals. After 4 seasons in Oklahoma (City) the former Seattle Supersonics made themselves well known last year when they lost the 2011 conference final game, but they never quit and Oklahomans take pride in having their currently only or first major league sports team in their state. I have family of Mom's side in Tulsa, also the home of the WNBA Tulsa Shock as the summertime pro basketball option, as well their strong support of NCAA college sports made the sooner state filled with such enthuasism for the Thunder. They await the winner of the eastern conference finals: either the Miami Heat (they lost last year's NBA finals to the Dallas Mavericks) or the Boston Celtics (the leading NBA title champion of all time), but you know the Thunder wants to carry the NBA finals trophy instead of their opponent.
